An entry-level red from local varieties, the 2019 Vermell is a blend of 70% Garnacha Tintorera and 30% Mandó from vines planted in 1996. It fermented with part of full clusters in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and matured in 2,600-liter clay tinajas (amphorae) for four months. The vinification is very light, closer to a rosé than a red. This is very primary, juicy like biting into a ripe bunch of grapes. The palate is still mineral and serious, with a dry, chalky finish, quite unusual at this price point. It has a little more structure and oomph than the 2018. Straightforward and easy to drink. 80,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2020.
